Default 995ts barrel threading

I did wonder about that. At any rate, I found everything I needed to thread my 995ts & I'll try it with one of my rifles to see how it goes. My grandson was over, so I was showing him things about rifles. He picked up one of my 9mm & tried to push it into the muzzle end of my HP & I was surprised to see that the Federal, American Eagle round's was actually too large to go through the barrel, so I was glad he was here. Now all I have to do is pull out all 300 rounds out of my 9mm stock. I wish now I would haven't have removed them out of the boxes & just mixed in with my 1,200 & 2,400 round containers. Anyone else run into it? Sorry I jumped off the thread, but if I didn't catch that issue now, I'm sure it would have ripped off the threads if it had been 2 weeks later, or if the 1st round fired made it almost completely through the barrel.....

If a bullet just falls into the muzzle end, you've got a problem. The act of firing a round forces the bullet into the barrel, where it's a tight fit to maintain gas pressure.

Back to topic, can anyone give an estimate of what a smith would charge to thread a barrel?
